The curtain wall of the Skokie Hospital was in need of repair after 30 plus years of exposure. Unlike the previous aluminum curtain wall restorations that have been featured on Lumiflon USA, the Skokie Hospital featured a porcelain enamel curtain wall; which is a difficult surface to re-spray. Rather than performing a costly replacement of the entire system, All-Tech Coatings was able to restore the curtain wall using PPG’s Coraflon ADS coating with Lumiflon FEVE resins.

Restoring Curtain Walls And Extrusions Using Lumiflon FEVE Resins

Unlike roofing panels, curtain walls and extrusions are subjected to different amounts of weathering and deterioration. Typically, complete replacement of curtain walls and extrusions are costly, and they also interfere with the building’s operations for long periods of time. Instead, restoration of these metal substrates is a more viable option to the building owners. These projects require the careful removal of the existing coating, priming and the application of the new coating as to prevent accidental overspray on other parts of the building or surroundings. All-Tech Decorating (ATD) of Romeoville, IL chooses PPG’s Coraflon ADS coatings enriched with Lumiflon FEVE Resins for their ability to achieve factory-like finishes as well as reduce metallic flop.
